Weekly Welcome 29 June, 2018

Hello GitHub Community Forum :smileyvery-happy:

Our first challenge is complete! Congratulations to all of the participants! Check out the details in this post: GitHub Learning Lab Explorer Challenge Complete!

This is our Weekly Welcome post, where we like to welcome new members to the GitHub Community Forum and make it easy to find out about some of the week’s hottest topics and important events.

Please make yourself at home and start exploring all the different areas of the Community Forum. We have some great resources to help you get started; you can find those listed in our Community Forum Resources. You can also find out about current and future events by checking out the information below.

And if you’re so inclined, don’t forget to say hello!* If you’re new here, reply to this topic and introduce yourself. You can share a little about who you are, what language you like to code in or learn more about, what you want to learn about using GitHub, and/or what you hope to get out of the Community Forum. We look forward to hearing from you!

* Note: If you want to say “hi” to your fellow Community members, we encourage you to do so! However, please say hello in a reply to this Topic, instead of opening a brand new Topic. We try to reserve Topics for specific questions, idea discussion, or information sharing. Moving forward, any “Hello”-type Topics will be locked, and the author will be redirected to the most recent Weekly Welcome to introduce themselves to the Community.

I just joined a couple days ago and am trying to get the feel of the site. I just graduated from Liberty University Online a few months back, but have been having trouble finding a remote programming job for someone who is entry-level. So, I thought this would be a good place to get some experience and maybe network while I keep applying to jobs.

I’ve done the short tutorial of making changes and pull requests. My main interests are C# and Java (those are the main object-oriented languages I learned in college). Anyone have suggestions on where I should go from here?

Welcome @counterwiseclock!

We’re glad to have you here! If you have questions about a particular project, you might try posting about the project in the Project Development Help and Advice board.

If there’s anything we can help you with, don’t hesitate to let us know.


Thanks for the welcome,

View from the hill looks nice, I, myself find it to be a good releiver.

Being a veteran programmer, may I skip the hello world section and post a mini-amusing project instead? I am hoping others may enjoy the code I had written.  Do I simply upload the source files+readme?

Thanks in advance…

Hello everyone,

I’m also new to this forum. I just joined up today and I would like to see what new things are possible to learn from here. You’ve got a nice website :smiley:
